History of Tharangambadi
Tarangambadi was a former Danish colony that was known as "Tranquebar". This tiny village lies on the Coromandel (east) coast of India. Tarangambadi is located 35-km north of Nagapattinam and 50-km from Chidambaram.
Ore Gedde, the commander of the Royal Dutch Navy built Tarangambadi Fort, in the year 1620.The fort has two storeys and is a stunning piece of viking architecture, with enclosing stonewalls and cannons facing the sea. The fort was the most important building, which housed the top echelons of the Danish officials. Apart from the ramparts, the rest of the buildings are in good condition. The fort is now converted into an archaeological museum, with many weapons and artefacts from the Danish past. The museum also showcases marine life and a row of Danish ships, which sailed into Tranquebar.
